1 preliminaries

1. Preliminaries

  • ERC (European Research Council)

    • http://erc.europa.eu

    • Started in 2008

    • Advanced Investigator Grants: ~300/year; up to 5 years and up to 2.5 MEURO; all disciplines, world-wide

    • Requirements: prior Excellence (50%); Breakthrough, New Avenues for Research (50%)

  • TRAMAN21

    • Started in March 2013

    • Strong background in Traffic Management

    • Scope: Motorway traffic of the future

  • Motorway traffic: strongly degraded daily


Traman21 tra ffic man agement for the 21 st century motivation and scope

  • Motorway traffic control

    • Ramp metering

    • Variable Speed Limits (VSL)

    • Driver Information and Route Guidance


3 vehicle automation and communication systems vacs

3. Vehicle Automation and Communication Systems (VACS)

  • In-vehicle systems (automated vehicles)

    • Collision warning; automated queue, congestion, and road works assistance; active green driving; obstacle avoidance; lane keeping; ACC; active lane-changing or merging system; fully automated vehicles (Google car); driver supervision; …

    • Mainly for safety and convenience: ADAS

    • Some (few) VACS have direct traffic flow implications


Traman21 tra ffic man agement for the 21 st century motivation and scope

  • VII or cooperative systems (connected vehicles)

    • Several of the above (e.g. CACC, cooperative lane-changing, …)

    • Vehicles = mobile sensors

    • What applications?

    • Direct link TCC --> vehicle (e.g. route advise, VSL, lane change, …)

  • Platooning

    • Various suggestions

    • Dedicated lanes?


Traman21 tra ffic man agement for the 21 st century motivation and scope

  • TRAMAN21:

    • Implications of emerging VACS for traffic flow behaviour: New traffic flow modelling approaches

    • Intelligent vehicles may lead to worse traffic flow efficiency: e.g. ACC with long time gaps; under-utilized dedicated lanes; informed but uncoordinated driver route choice; …

    • What functions should be enabled with V2V, V2I, I2V?

    • Exploitation of VACS for better Traffic Management


For an uncertain future vacs evolution and varying penetration levels

… for an uncertain future VACS evolution and varying penetration levels
